Fredonia's first Oboe Day features the return of popular eclectic Quartetto Gelato oboist Colin Maier, this time in recital with accordionist and fellow Gelato member Charles Cozens!

Oboe Day is for all oboists of any age or stage, whether just starting out or out looking for new ideas. We invite all music educators to attend the day for free (does not include lunch or the afternoon recital) ... please register using the Educator Discount button above.

The day will include a masterclass with Colin for everyone, lunch (included), chamber and large ensemble music reading sessions with Fredonia School of Music oboe students, and a recital with both our guest artists.

Come to learn more about playing the oboe, to spend time with the local oboe community, and hear new directions the oboe is going in!


Jim Mason, of Jimboe Oboe Products, will be bringing instruments for trial and purchase. Please contact him directly if you have a specific request.
